This is a very good controlled parking location with easy access to the ocean front. Not a park in the traditional sense of the word.

For years we visited Isle of Palms. We loved the place. We were engaged there over 23 years ago. We have been back twice this year and it has really gone down hill. Beach access is easy and cheap due to the county parking lot....More

I really wouldn’t call this a park but it is a great place to park and go to the beach. It does have a volleyball net and a little play area but that is as close as it gets to a park. Really nice place...More

Great area! We stopped by to see the beach. Grabbed a bite to eat and enjoyed the waves. Also got to watch the sun set. Very pretty!

If the parking isn't full, you don't pay much. There are cabanas for changing and showers for rinsing off. It's an easy way to the beach, but you can also park on the street and take many of the dozens of access paths between houses.

Who knew Charleston had such beautiful beaches? Very busy on the day we were there, but with good reason. Large beach area that was very well maintained and had a large Lifeguard presence. Nice sandy beach and warm water (85 degrees at the end of...More

Get a membership or pay the 10 bucks and have a perfect day at the beach. You can't go wrong! The park has showers, covered patios, several outdoor changing rooms, lots of charcoal grills and the parking is easier.

This is my wife's favorite Charleston-area beach. It has restroom, lifeguards, and it's family-friendly.

I agree with Curtis C, Shem Creek is awesome... Pages Okra Grill is fantastic! Huge menu and very affordable. There is a decent restaurant overlooking the backwater at Isle of Palms marina.
